Subject: Left Hand of Clyde
Fantastic show, an easy favorite. Levine and Mallet lean into the deep jazz side of the d'Elf palette, invoking Herbie Hancock and Miles Davis without ever letting the groove slip. Must download material. Here's an updated setlist:

Set 1
01 Vishnu Dub >
02 Softly >
03 Scorpionic >
04 Sand >
05 Life of the Mind >
06 Left Hand of Clyde (Pt. 1-3)
07 Salvia > Big Light in Sky (@11:34)
08 Band Intros
09 Like a Silence

Set 2
01 The Tingler >
02 Improv > Get a Little Turning (@6:09) >
03 As Above >
04 Improv > Improv/unknown (@6:08)

Subject: great performance and recording
This is one the best performance and recordings I have downloaded from Archive.org - and this is from repeated listening, and many other downloads.

The tabla levels were too low - not the fault of the recording - probably more the sound balance at the gig.

Eric Kalb absolutely smokes on this -
steady, unobtrusive - but smokes - what a good drummer should be.

Very nice.. Checked it out on a whim from the recently review shows, and found a good one! Tight grooves all the way through. Wish this was more of a touring show.. Wisco people need some love too!

Subject: the man is right
thanks to the previous review I d'loaded this gem and got myself a hot recording of sublime, even hypnotic funk. in the pocket indeed

p.s. the only reason it's not a five star is I try and save those for the shows that actually make me soil myself. the 'beyond the pale' wholy waw shows.

what. a. great. show.
this was my 9th live d'elf experience, and it's among my favorites. micro vard was his usual indefatigable self, pushing everyone else forward and laying it down with authority on basses, computo (aka joe caputo) sat in for the first time w his mac laptop, sometimes controlling it with a joystick he apparently hacked himself as an interface, sick beats from that corner... the rest of the band members were really ON as well (mr rourke possibly a little more laid back than in some sessions, but great nonetheless... and his apporach allowed all the layers of rhythm from jerry and eric kalb and computo to complement each other perfectly)... alain mallet sometimes sat back, really subdued, for long stretches, but right when you started to notice his absence, kaboom he'd explode on the keys, not dissimilar to medeski in his aggro yet sublimely cool voicings... and duke had some otherworldly moments of his own.

especially considering the mix of veterans and new session mates, this show is/was really tight. one of the best, funkiest "left hand of clyde"s I've heard yet... overall the crowd was into it, the band was in it, and I left exhausted and exhilarated as always. I haven't finished listening to the entire FLAC recording yet but it seems flawless so far.

If you don't know this band, you are missing out!
and if you do, I don't think you'll be disappointed by this one.
